IBM Microprocessors to Power the New Wii U

9 Jun

I love learning about the technology behind the powerful machines we use day in and day out. It’s funny because most of us don’t understand how complex and smart the technology is behind what we think are some of the simplest machines to use like our smartphones, computers, laptops, and gaming systems.

Did you know that IBM’s microprocessor will power Nintendo’s latest Wii, the WiiU?

The all-new, power-based microprocessor will pack some of IBM’s most advanced technology into an energy-saving silicon package that will power Nintendo’s brand new entertainment experience for consumers worldwide. IBM’s unique embedded DRAM, for example, is capable of feeding the multi-core processor large chunks of data to make for a smooth entertainment experience.
